Note for children in Cobras!
On Monday we will be enjoying a day off lessons after we wrote letters to Mrs Frost to persuade her to reward our hard work with a day of fun. We will be playing games in the morning, followed by having a bouncy castle outside! In the afternoon, we hope to enjoy some water races and games as long as the weather is good.
Please send your child in with a change of clothes to wear for the afternoon, as well as a towel. Children will also need hats, and make sure they have had plenty of suncream put on before they come to school as we will be outside for a lot of the day.
Thanks, Mrs Snape
Welcome to Year 3!
This half term, our topic is all about the Water Cycle. Over the half term we are learning about how water changes state, how it cycles around the water cycle and how we can conserve water. We are using ICT to create our own animations for the water cycle and in geography lessons we are making clouds. To start the topic, Richard from Anglian Water taught us about how water is cleaned and reused, and we all had the chance to make our own sewage!
During our music lesson, year 3 dressed up in their homemade Roman outfits and used music to help them move around in formation just as a Roman army would have. The children, in small groups, had to compose a series of sounds that had different instructions that could be followed whilst marching in a column. For example, one tap meant march, two taps resulted in a 90 degree right turn. We finished the lesson off with a full on charge mounted against imaginary Celts!
Suffolk Farm and Country Fair
On Thursday 21st April, Year 3 and 4 went to Trinity Park to the Farm and Country Fair. We saw all kinds of animals, tried lots of different foods and learnt about where some of our food comes from. We also got to go on a tractor ride! The children had a lovely day and behaved beautifully - well done to all of you!
On the first day back after the holidays, the author Mark Lowery came in to school. He talked to us in assembly about how to be a writer. Some of his top tips included: dropping hints throughout the story, start planning from the ending/resolution and work backwards and let the reader know more than the character knows.
